Feeling Bleeccchhhhy

Sunday I woke up with a sore throat. As the day progressed I felt worse, even though I slept most of the afternoon. Today I am still battling the sore throat and a little bit of head stuff. It's not terrible, but my energy is in the basement. And I just hate sore throats! I can't even swallow! I'm trying to be patient until recovery, which I know will come. I just hope it happens in time for final Christmas preparations.

I've been parked on the couch for a couple of days. Once in a while I work up enough energy to do a little knitting. This is going to be a lap blanket made from leftover yarns. It's bound to be a long-term project as I don't have that many leftovers, being relatively new to the knitting craze. The leftovers will come as I make more hats and other lovelies.

Meanwhile, I'm very happy to have found our Ricola (throat lozenges) and to have a nice couch on which to crash. Now if only I could do something about the quality of day-time TV.

When finished, the lapghan will be filled with memories of past projects. It looks great so far.

Sorry you're feeling blecchyyy! Being snowed in, feeling that way, and trying to find worthwhile daytime TV is a recipe for the blahs, definitely! Hope a nice cup of hot chocolate and a Christmas movie pep you up :)

Carol, I'm sorry to hear you are under the weather. It seems worse this time of year. I've spent my share of Christmas Holidays under the weather and I'm sure you will feel better by the end of the week. Sleep, rest, get plenty of liquids and tend to the sore throat. Merry Christmas.

Feel better soon. Must be going around. I had to keep Goodnight home from school yesterday. I hope you got a two-hour nap like she did. Happy Holidays!
